Expert Advice

As a wedding professional, Liz Underdown offers expert advice to help couples plan their perfect day. Ask a question or read their expert advice.

Can the celebrant refer to us as husband and wife in a commitment ceremony?

In a commitment ceremony is the celebrant allowed to say husband and wife?

Liz Underdown

When performing a commitment ceremony, everyone present must be aware that it is not a legal wedding ceremony where the couple become husband and wife.

The Celebrant will deliver words to the affect that you are wishing to make a lifetime commitment to each other, knowing that it will bind them just as close as any legal ceremony.

What makes a good marriage celebrant?

Liz Underdown

A good marriage celebrant will take the time to really get to know the couple they are marrying.  They will ask questions about your relationship, what your family and friends mean to you, your proposal and your hopes and dreams for the future as husband and wife.  I always ask my couples what they truly love about each other and why they want to marry.   A good celebrant will always arrive at your ceremony early. They will remember names, they will conduct your ceremony like you have been friends for years.  They will look and speak to all your family and friends and not forget to acknowledge your beautiful bridal party.   They will always put you at ease and have everything in place before you walk down the aisle.    A good celebrant will work closely with your photographer, making sure they are getting a perfect shot every time during your ceremony.   They will schedule ceremonies to allow for unplanned situations that may pop up from time to time.  Changes in weather, transport or traffic to your ceremony all play a part that no one has control over.  A good celebrant will conduct your marriage ceremony in accordance with the Marriage Act to ensure it is valid and set the scene for the remainder of your day to be everything you've always wanted and dreamt about. 

Is it ok to use the same Celebrant that our friends used?

What are your thoughts on using the same celebrant that a friend used? Have you experienced this before?

Liz Underdown

Hi Kate,

I doubt there could be a better way to find a celebrant than to contact one that your friends have used at their wedding if you really enjoyed their ceremony.

It's all about presentation, style and professionalism, some Celebrants have what it takes in spades and others not so much.

Getting a first hand view is definitely going to give you a preview of what you would expect for yourselves on your Wedding Day.
